Academy Bf 109 G-6 (1/72nd scale)
..already started this neat little kit from Academy. Cockpit is quite adequately detailed for this scale, but I've added some etch rudder pedals and belts. Still toying with the idea of adding the drop tank fuel line to the starboard cockpit wall. On the real machine this had a perspex cut-out window so that the pilot could check for the presence of air bubbles, indicating that he was running low and should prepare to switch over tanks.
judging by this shot, looks like I put the pedals on the wrong way round - not surprising in this scale as I can hardly see them !
